Strong partnership between Scotch AGS and SACE Board

Prof. Martin Westwell, Executive Director of SACE International, shared that the SACE is the Baccalaureate degree chosen by many students because of its rigorous teaching and assessment model while creating a space for holistic development for each student. With SACE, students are always at the center of every lesson. The SACE program is student-centered, enabling students to progress not only in the university environment but also in their future lives.

In recent years, with the trend of internationalization, the program has begun to come closer to countries outside Australia with equal quality and value. Students will be awarded the SACE and the corresponding ATAR score with their results.

A few countries that offer the SACE include Malaysia, China, and Asia-Pacific countries. In Malaysia, SACE has been present since 1980 and has so far recorded tens of thousands of SACE graduates. In China, the SACE entered in 2004 and quickly built up a network of schools offering this program.

In Vietnam, SACE has been officially presented since 2017 in Hanoi. By 2022, the SACE program had been officially transferred to Scotch AGS, one of the pioneer high schools in Ho Chi Minh City. This is a milestone that opens up the opportunity for Vietnamese students to study the Australian standard program right in Ho Chi Minh City. It is also a good condition for students to conquer the world’s top 1% of universities.

A representative of Scotch AGS said that the SACE program had been improved and designed with great flexibility to maximize the potential of each student. With SACE, students will not learn mechanically, theoretically, or merely to cope with exams. 30% of the final score of SACE students comes from the final test, and 70% of the final score will be recorded from the school process. As a result, the SACE creates conditions to foster each student’s way of thinking by applying judgment and analysis.
